With injectables & dermal fillers becoming the go-to treatment option in Dubai for facial contouring, you must know that there are alternate options for getting similar results without the needles! The Gua Sha Facial has made many recent converts in the last year as it’s natural technique sculpts and contours the face to give you smoother, brighter skin and a more chiseled face and jawline.
How does a Gua Sha Facial work?
Gua Sha comes from ancient Chinese medicine, where women for centuries used it as an anti-ageing tool. The treatment involves the use of a crystal called jade, that are massaged into the skin using sculpting techniques to contour the shape of the face, cheekbones and neck. At the same time, it increases blood circulation, refines and smooths the skin and reduces inflammation leaving a plumper, more youthful-looking complexion. It can also help relieve tension in the head and face, as the jade puts pressure on acupressure points to reduce stress that manifests across the face and the neck.
What are the benefits?
The Gua Sha Facial has many health benefits, most significantly – it’ll make your skin look more youthful and refined. As the jade stimulates the skin, toxins and impurities are drained out through the body’s natural lymph draining system. As a result, the jade helps to greatly reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, treats sagging skin by lifting and tightening, breaks up the skin from hyperpigmentation and brightens the complexion. It can be used to sort out dark circles and lines under the eyes and spots around the skin. Many also use this facial to treat migraines and jaw pains generally caused by tension in the body translated onto the head and neck.
Some women have even called this facial the best natural alternative to injectables as its one of the few treatments to really get deep into the muscle and massage to alter the shape and structure to create a refined complexion. To see the full benefits, the treatment must be done regularly but it is well worth it for younger, healthier-looking skin.
